Obama Upset That People Don't Give Him Enough Credit For Ok-ing Social Security/Medicare Cuts

For anyone who has ignored the evidence and still believes that Obama wouldn't cut social security or Medicare, this is from the man himself:
The news media have played a crucial role in Mr. Obama’s career, helping to make him a national star not long after he had been an anonymous state legislator. As president, however, he has come to believe the news media have had a role in frustrating his ambitions to change the terms of the country’s political discussion. He particularly believes that Democrats do not receive enough credit for their willingness to accept cuts in Medicare and Social Security, while Republicans oppose almost any tax increase to reduce the deficit.
So there you have it. There is so much more to say about the fact that he wants credit for being willing to do something horrible, but I don't have the energy. You know what is going to be terrible? The lame duck session. Get ready now, it's going to be a fight.
